"The seizure of power in February by this right-wing group represented – I think, to the U.S. government – an opportunity to finally pull Ukraine away from Russia, forcing it to choose to ultimately become part of NATO. I think that's the aim."

– David Kotz, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst on the current conflict between Ukraine and pro-Russian separatists and rising tensions between the U.S., European Union and Russia

Threat of Wider War Looms Over Ukraine as U.S. and NATO Accuse Russia of Intervention in Civil War

MP3 Interview with David Kotz, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, conducted by Scott Harris

ukraine

An offensive by Ukraine’s military in recent weeks has succeeded in recapturing territory once held by pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine. According to the United Nations, the country’s civil war has claimed the lives of more than 2,000 people and wounded 5,000 in eastern Ukraine since the conflict began in April. Civilian casualties have increased in recent weeks as Kiev’s army has advanced into the region’s major cites. Two hundred-ninety-eight people died in mid-July when a Malaysian airliner was shot down over the region, allegedly brought down by pro-Russian rebels who may have accidentally targeted the passenger jet with a Russian-made ground-to-air missile.  Story continues

Could Public Outrage at Michael Brown Shooting Death and Widespread Police Brutality Inspire New Civil Rights Movement?

MP3 Interview with Vernellia Randall, emeritus professor of law at the University of Dayton, Ohio, conducted by Scott Harris

michaelbrown

After two weeks of protest, militarized police response and street violence in Ferguson, Missouri, the body of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old African American shot to death by a white police officer, was laid to rest after an emotional funeral ceremony attended by thousands. Among those speaking at the funeral were civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton and family members who called for justice in the case, expressing the desire by many in Ferguson for the police officer who shot Brown, Darren Wilson, to be indicted for murder. A grand jury is now weighing evidence in the case, and a federal investigation is also underway.  Story continues

After 3-Year Protest Campaign, Swiss Banking Giant UBS Pulls Back from Investments in Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining

MTR

In November 2013, 14 activists were arrested for challenging the role financial services company UBS plays in mountaintop removal coal mining. Their protest action took place at the U.S. headquarters of UBS in Stamford, Connecticut. One group of activists scaled a crane and unfurled a banner which read, “UBS Stop Funding MTN Top Removal," while others locked themselves to a railing inside the headquarters’ main entrance.  Story continues
